Show season is coming! If you need a refresher on perfecting your hunter or jumper braids, look no further.
While prioritizing your horse’s health, condition and training for showing this spring is certainly important, it’s the finishing details that can really pull your overall horse show presentation together! In the hunter/jumper arenas, there’s no better way to show off your horse than to braid: a beautiful braiding job can highlight the strengths of you horse’s conformation and give you a professional look to your turnout.
But show-ring-ready braids don’t just happen on their own — it takes a lot of practice to get that winning look. If you need to brush up on your hunter or jumper braids, don’t worry! Draper Therapies Advisory Board member Alexandria Quayle, owner/operator/trainer at Grand Champion Show Stables in Norfolk, Massachusetts, walks us through the steps.
Practice makes perfect and show season is coming — get those fingers loosened up and start shopping for the perfect shade of yarn!
